Mounir Louhaichi, Kailene Jamel, Slim Slim. (31/12/2018). Field day report on: School day tree planting. Beirut, Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
The field day was organized on the 10th of April 2018 at Chehda Primary School in Sbaihia, Zaghouan. A total of at least 40 pupils attended this field day, facilitated by Mr Jamel (Director- Directorate General of Forestry). Mr Jamel welcomed the pupil participants for the field day and introduced the main aim of the field day as to educate and inform pupils in the school about the importance of trees towards sustaining human livelihoods and the role of trees in the ecosystem. Mr Klaine mentioned that the field day also targeted practical demonstrations and participation of school pupils on the planting of seedlings in the rangeland surrounding their communities. After introducing and giving a detailed discussion (in simple terms for the pupils to understand) about the role of trees and shrubs for ecosystem service provision and their role in rehabilitating degraded ecosystems, Mr Jamel then distributed booklets to the pupils with information describing how humans should sustainably use trees for a better tomorrow.
